From a post awhile back.....
Love 'em (so far)
Just bought a pair and really love the idea of "convertibility". I had the earlier version Simms made, the RiverTek convertible, and really liked the option of using them just as a pant wader...great for those hot summer days on small streams, particularly here in CA. They finally wore out so I bought these.
I've used them about a dozen times so far and found them to be very comfortable. Having said that, I've always found wader fit to be very personal...so go try 'em on. The suspenders are comfortable, I like the built in belt...so, yeah, a qualified thumbs up.
Now....a wee caveat. The suspenders attach via a hook and loop setup and I found that when donning the waders, these can become "unhooked". Not a big deal, a very minor annoyance and quite easy to re-attach.
